Workload increase for technology employees
According to a new poll, IT workers have seen a noticeable increase in their workload since 2006.

Polling 500 workers in the IT sector, website theitjobboard.co.uk found that 42.5 per cent of respondents said they were working longer hours then two years ago due to an increased workload.

However, 72.3 per cent said they felt their productivity had not suffered due to the extension.

Alex Farrell, managing director for the website, said: "Despite the predicted downturn we are still suffering a skills crisis, so it is essential that we don't disillusion our skilled workers at a time when we need them most."

Ms Farrell also advised businesses not to "drive employees to burnout" as the demand for skilled workers becomes stronger.

As many companies make job cuts due to tough economic times, a recent report from Deutsche Bank revealed that companies offshoring their IT operations is not having an impact on redundancies in the UK.
